Winter Solace 2024

What if instead of New Year’s Resolutions, you could start your year in community with people who are longing to live whole-person lives and are taking steps in that direction? 

Winter Solace is a time to take a breath…and also gently acquire some inner resources and practices for the year ahead. This year we will be contemplating the idea of “Home.”

Home has so many connotations–for some of us a place of safety, for others completely the opposite. What makes up a diverse-Christian perspective on Home, and how can we ground ourselves there in preparation for whatever we meet as we travel forward into 2024?

Along with Jennifer Layte, pastors and spiritual caregivers from various Christian traditions will present large-group teaching and smaller-group workshops and spiritual practices over the course of the weekend. You’ll find out more about each of us and what we’re bringing to the weekend, after you register. We are excited and hopeful about affirming your own journey with and to God by sharing the ways we have found that help us interact with Jesus. We really hope you’ll join us!

This event begins at 7PM Eastern on Friday, January 12, and ends around 2PM Eastern on Sunday, January 14. The entire event will be hosted on Zoom.

In order to reflect the diversity of the Home metaphor, Jenn is looking for about six artistic renderings of the concept for our retreat PR. If you’d like to submit one–anything from a doodle to a painting to a sculpture to a photo, please send it to her at by September 18. Thank you!
